Happy new year to everybody, and sorry for the lack of a January update. There have been some really great ideas suggested recently in the forums, and by email, so please keep them coming. Apologies for not being able to implement these as as quickly as I'd like, and thank you for your patience in the interim. Most people will know here, I also have a pesky day job which sometimes gets in the way of BEA, but I will work on implementing the back log once my day job calms down a bit.

BEA is a music site (& that's why most people register), so I'd like to ask people to concentrate more on discussing music, and keep threads on topic. Some people here might not mind this, but new members are attracted to the site because of the music, but can be put off from posting when they see some of the stuff here; and some of the existing members feel unable to contribute (or don't want to) because they don't want to interact on that level. The site rules are there for a reason, and the moderators and myself are here to help create an environment where everybody can be involved.

This month's update mainly contains bug fixes, but next month will see some bigger changes...

  • Forum usage statistics are now shown on user profile pages. Original thread (from RFNAPLES).
  • Added average rating statistics for each user and a rating distribution graph to theuser ratings tab.
  • Fixed an issue where a customise overall chart CSV file contained an incorrect sort order. Original thread (from RFNAPLES).
  • Fixed a bug with the customise overall chart functionality where certain criteria could be ignored. Original thread (from Jabapac).
  • Fixed an issue where users couldn't post URLs on the forums even though they were Level 2.
  • Fixed an issue where new comments were not shown immediately on track pages.
  • URLs on the forums are now auto-shortened if they are more than x characters (peviously, they could stretch the forum layout).
  • Fixed a bug to prevent duplicate comments on the object pages.
  • Added a warning on the object pages to warn people against copying/pasting reviews from other websites. At some stage in the future BEA might show these separately, but for the time being these don't belong in member comments (especially if they are not the author's own work).
  • ...Lots more smaller fixes and improvements!
